Namibia is a "secret" wildlife lover's gem! If you
want sheer adventure, offering unique experiences that
are non-existant elsewhere in Africa, this trip is for
you. Imagine tracking desert-adapted elephants, lions,
and cheetahs--and the only population of desert black
rhino still living in the wild? Think you have already
seen the best of Africa? Join us for a truly amazing
wildlife safari to a very unique and exhilarating part
of this incredible continent. Join us for a Wilderness
Medicine CME experience par excellence!
Namibia is a vast country, covering an area
approximately twice the size of California, but with
a population of a mere 2 million - the second lowest
density in the world. Traveling in Namibia brings an
amazingly 'soulful' feeling of peace and solitude.
It is also an 'ageless land'; visible through a
heritage of rock art created by stone-age artists
and geological attractions such as the petrified
forest (where fossilized tree trunks have laid for
over 280 million years)
This Privately Guided Namibia Safari affords you
the chance to experience this magnificent and
memorable country in a very personal way. You will
have your own experienced safari guide who will make
your trip a stress-free journey of discovery amidst
dramatic scenery. The knowledge, experience and
attitude of our guides are critical to a successful
safari which is why we ensure that they are both
personable and very professional. Your guide will
have an intimate knowledge of each area and
camp/lodge that you visit, allowing them to share
the local highlights while adding continuity and
depth to your safari. It goes without saying that
they know exactly what a "True African Safari" is
all about. Each guide has a developed an additional
specific area of expertise. Together they possess
the breadth and depth of knowledge to answer
questions and satisfy the particular interests of
each participant. Your guide will help turn your
safari into an experience of a lifetime!
The climate Namibia is typical of a semi-desert
country. Days are warm to hot and nights are
generally cool. Temperatures are modified by the
high plateau in the interior and by the cold
Benguela Current that runs along the Atlantic
The Wilderness and Travel Medicine CME lectures
will take place in fantastic wildlife lodges each
late afternoon before dinner.

highlands over 1 000 km away into the Delta to
create this wondrous wetland within a desert. It is
home to large numbers of wildlife from common
mammals and birdlife to those that are not often
seen elsewhere, such as sitatunga, wild dog, and
